The Tennessee Titans were back out on the field on Tuesday for another session of Organized Team Activities (OTAs). After hearing from assistant coaches prior to practice, head coach Mike Vrabel and players spoke after.
After weeks of speculation about his pre-draft conditioning, Titans wide receivers coach Rob Moore confirmed the suspicion that rookie wideout Treylon Burks has been dealing with asthma.
“That’s unfortunate. Some of those things that happen were kind of out of his control,” Moore said, via ESPN’s Turron Davenport. “The kid’s got asthma.
“He understands what the expectations are, but at the end of the day, it’s really him getting himself immersed in the culture of how we do things here, how we play here, which is different from every player that comes in here from college because we ask these guys to do things that a lot of teams don’t ask them to do,” Moore added
Hopefully, Burks can find a way to manage his asthma as he hits the field for mandatory minicamp and training camp in preparation for the regular season.
